Nottingham Forest are the latest club to emerge as a potential candidate to sign Arnaut Danjuma. The forward has jetted into England and will discuss a loan move with several clubs, according to the Daily Mail.
Forest are on the lookout for new forwards this month. They’re about to bolster their defensive ranks with the signing of Danilo, who typically operates as a defensive midfielder.
Danjuma would come in and strengthen things at the other end of the pitch. Forest aren’t the only club interested though, with Bournemouth, Aston Villa, Everton and Tottenham all keen.
The Villarreal forward will be allowed to leave the La Liga club this month. He’s been a mainstay in the team since checking in from Bournemouth for £22 million in 2021.
Danjuma, 25, has found the net six times during the 2022/23 campaign. It’s perhaps unclear at this stage why he’s being allowed to leave Villarreal during the January transfer window.

Jonathan Woodgate has previously raved about the talented player. He called him ‘exceptional’ when he was in charge of Bournemouth and clearly, he enjoyed managing the player.
It’s no surprise that Forest are interested in Danjuma. He can operate on the flanks or through the middle as an out-and-out centre forward and Steve Cooper likes that versatility.

This would be an intriguing signing. Danjuma has done well for Villarreal but it’s perhaps clear at this stage that the Reds aren’t leading the chase for the player’s signature.
Still, to be in with a shout of winning the prize, you have to buy a ticket. It seems clear from the latest report that Filippo Giraldo believes he’d make a useful Forest signing.
Forest desperately need another forward player. Jesse Lingard is currently injured, whilst Emmanuel Dennis appears to have very little in the way of faith shown by Cooper.
The £34,000-a-week Danjuma would be a very useful signing indeed. He is quick, skilful and is renowned for leaving defenders in his wake when running at the opposition.
